Dubai: Mumbai Indians had to face defeat by 20 runs in the IPL match played against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) had given a target of 157 runs in 20 overs to Mumbai Indians to win, but due to the flop show of the batsmen, Mumbai’s team could score only 136 runs. Mumbai Indians lost their 4 wickets for just 58 runs. Barring Saurabh Tiwary (50), none of the batsmen could even cross the 20-run mark for Mumbai Indians.
This player became the villain of the defeat of Mumbai Indians
Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma was not playing in this match, so the responsibility of victory was on the shoulders of No. 3 batsman Suryakumar Yadav. Suryakumar Yadav could not do anything special in this match and got out for 3 runs leaving his team in the middle and kept walking. The entire batting of Mumbai Indians was ruined as soon as Suryakumar Yadav was dismissed. Mumbai Indians lost their 6 wickets at the score of 94 runs.
Mumbai Indians batsmen kneeled badly
If Suryakumar Yadav had stayed, then the batting of Mumbai Indians would not have kneeled so badly. Suryakumar Yadav became the villain of the defeat of Mumbai Indians. After the defeat of Mumbai Indians, his fans are disappointed. Suryakumar Yadav was selected by the selectors in the top 15 players in the T20 World Cup instead of a talented batsman like Shreyas Iyer. While Shreyas Iyer was kept in the list of reserve players, if a player is ruled out of the tournament due to injury, then it is possible for Shreyas Iyer to get a chance.
If Suryakumar Yadav proves to be a flop in the T20 World Cup in the same way, then Team India may have to pay a big price, because the batsman who has been selected in his place is also a very talented player. Let us tell you that during the limited overs series between India and England in March this year, Shreyas Iyer suffered a shoulder injury, after which he underwent surgery and was out of the field for several months.
IPL captaincy also gone
Shreyas Iyer is currently in UAE and preparing for IPL 2021. Delhi Capitals has named Rishabh Pant as the captain in place of Shreyas Iyer in this IPL season. Delhi Capitals is on top of the points table in the first phase of IPL with 6 wins in 8 matches.
T20 World Cup ticket also lost
Talking about the T20 World Cup, Shreyas Iyer has been replaced by Suryakumar Yadav in the T20 World Cup. Due to the injury of Shreyas Iyer, the opportunity to play the T20 World Cup was snatched from him.
